Platanos & Collard Greens

The hit play that asks: can love between Blacks and Latinos survive?

Wednesday, September 26
6:00pm
C. Walsh Theatre

Platanos and Collard Greens, written by David Lamb and directed by Summer Hill Seven, tells the story of two college students, Freeman--an African-American man--and Angelita--a Latino woman--both forced to confront and overcome cultural and racial prejudices while defending their bond from the biases held by family and friends.

This thought-provoking romantic comedy addresses stereotypes, prejudices and urban myths that exist between African Americans and Latinos, within the context of Hip-Hop, humor, and satire. The play impels the audience to evaluate pervasive stereotypes. Platanos humorously displays these common, yet outrageous, viewpoints while deftly shooting them down and poetically exposing them as misrepresentations of reality. The audience while laughing out loud, is likely to question conventional attitudes held about themselves and others.

Tickets are free and available at the HUB.

Co-sponsored by: Retention Services, Student Activities & Service Learning, Performing Arts Office, Residence Life & Summer Programs, O.C.H.O., BSU, and SUHA.
